Cathy *Day 4*

I just love this round scallop card by Cathy:

This card caught my eye right away when I saw it in Cathy's photostream. I love the way she created a set of vertical panels, even on a round card! The stitching accents the center panel perfectly! Finally, Cathy's distressing adds a nice finishing touch! Oh- and that blue flower--gorgeous!

Here is my take on Cathy's card. I was really inspired to recreate those vertical "panels" and to add lots of distressing! Oh, and thank you, Joy, for the text paper- love it!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Supplies---Stamps: Butterflies (Hero Arts Digital Kit Winged Friends), Brocade (Hero Arts CG102), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL342), Grass (Stampin' Up); Ink: Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Distess Ink (Tim Holtz); Other: Misc.
